Happy Anniversary Mickey Mantle!!!

Happy Anniversary Mickey Mantle!!!

On this day in 1967, New York Yankees slugger Mickey Mantle hit the 500th home run of his career.

A baseball legend, Mantle could do no wrong while wearing his pinstripes.  And a  fan favorite since his debut in the league in 1951, it took Mantle 17 seasons to join the ‘500 Home Runs Club’.

Mantle retired after the 1968 baseball season.  He left the game with 536 career round-trippers.  Currently he sits alone in 16th place on the all-time list.
